SHENZHEN, China (AP) — After building a name for himself in the South Korean film and TV industries in the past decade, Kwon Sang-woo is setting his sights on another booming Asian entertainment market — China.

The 34-year-old actor is currently shooting "Repeat, I Love You," a Chinese-language romance alongside Hong Kong actress Cecilia Cheung and will next join the Jackie Chan project "Chinese Zodiac."

Kwon told reporters Friday during a break from filming, "This movie marks my first foray into international markets, so I take this movie very seriously."
